Multiscale convergence and reiterated homogenisation

  • Published online: 14 November 2011

This paper generalises the notion of two-scale convergence to the case of multiple separated scales of periodic oscillations. It allows us to introduce a multi-scale convergence method for the reiterated homogenisation of partial differential equations with oscillating coefficients. This new method is applied to a model problem with a finite or infinite number of microscopic scales, namely the homogenisation of the heat equation in a composite material. Finally, it is generalised to handle the homogenisation of the Neumann problem in a perforated domain.
